It is the second Montrose album to feature singer Bob James and keyboardist Jim Alcivar, and features bassist Randy Jo Hobbs on three songs. The remainder of the bass parts were supplied by Jim Alcivar via the keyboard and there was no bassist on the Jump on It tour. Jack Douglas produced the album.
Jump on It was the band's third highest-charting release, reaching No. 118 on the Billboard200 in October 1976.
